Grief Post - One Year

Today it's been a year since my dad died.  I've been trying to be wise and learn lessons from this and put good things out in the world to make some sort of sense of it, but this day I don't feel like I can do that.  All I have room for is the deep wound and the heavy weight of his loss.  If you knew him, you know he was a good man.  My parent, my friend, gone before his time, and I lost such a wealth of goodness and love all of a sudden on one terrible day.  I miss him terribly.

Here he is with his dad, in a quiet moment, and being delighted at Christmas.

at his parents' home in Manitowoc

Can't fake delight.

May his kind smile and good face do something for you today the way it has for me.

Thanks to Mark for the photos
